    Majority of Mark Hunt's Lawsuit against the UFC gets dismissed

    All but one of the claims in Mark Hunt’s lawsuit against the UFC have been dismissed.


    The UFC heavyweight is suing the promotion, UFC president Dana White and Brock Lesnar for multiple claims related to Lesnar’s drug-test failure in relation to his fight with Hunt at UFC 200 in 2016. Hunt claimed the parties involved committed racketeering, fraud, battery and civil conspiracy and more.


    Those claims were all dismissed with prejudice Thursday by U.S. District Court (Nevada) judge Jennifer Doresy in a filing, per court records. The only remaining claim in the lawsuit is Hunt’s claim against the UFC of breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing. All the claims against White and Lesnar were dismissed.


    Dorsey referred the lawsuit to a magistrate judge for a mandatory settlement conference.


    The lawsuit was first filed in 2016, though an amended complaint was filed in June 2017, claiming that the UFC, White and Lesnar knew Lesnar was using performance-enhancing drugs ahead of UFC 200. The parties involved cleared the way for Lesnar to get by USADA, the UFC’s anti-doping program, and then let him compete. It further claimed that Hunt was damaged both financially and physically by what attorneys have alleged was a criminal conspiracy.


    A big part of the lawsuit revolved around the UFC’s decision to waive the then-provision in its anti-doping policy that a fighter coming into the USADA drug-testing pool must be in it four months before fighting. Lesnar was in the USADA pool for about a month prior to UFC 200 and was tested several times, most of them negative. The sample collection 11 days before the fight ended up coming up positive for the prohibited substance clomiphene, but the test results were not expedited by USADA and didn’t come back until after Lesnar beat Hunt by unanimous decision.


    The UFC argued at the time that Lesnar was not under contract until about a month before the bout, therefore could not have been put in the drug-testing pool. The UFC’s anti-doping policy did give the promotion the ability to waive that four-month rule, which has since been expanded to six months. The UFC also said that Lesnar was never in the drug-testing pool when he retired in 2011; the UFC only hired USADA in 2015. The rule, it was stated, was put in place so fighters can’t leave the program and then come back quickly.


    Lesnar was suspended one year by USADA and the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC), in addition to a $250,000 from the NAC, for the positive drug test. He has not fought in the UFC since, though has been a key figure for WWE.


    In the filing, Dorsey wrote that just because Lesnar violated a rule of the sport “does not automatically negate Hunt’s consent.” She cited a ruling in a case, Avila v. Citrus Community College District, involving a baseball batter hit intentionally with a pitch as precedent.


    “Like that intentional throw, the fact that Lesnar was allegedly doping violated the bout rules established by UFC and the NAC but does not alone establish that his conduct exceeded the ordinary range of activity in an MMA fight,” Dorsey wrote. “As Hunt’s own allegations demonstrate, doping is an unfortunately common issue in MMA and was a risk he perceived. And although he argues that doping empowered Lesnar to move faster and hit harder, Hunt doesn’t allege that Lesnar’s conduct during the bout was somehow atypical—such as throwing Hunt out of the octagon or using ‘packed gloves’ or a weapon. Nor does Hunt claim that his injuries exceeded those typical of an MMA bout. Accordingly, I find that Hunt consented to his fight with Lesnar, which precludes civil-battery liability.”

    GnP City, Bitch!


    So much for Hunt’s pursuit of Lesnar’s $2.5 million payday. [​IMG]



    It's like I've always said :

    Mark Hunt's statement Pre-fight where he said he "didn't care if Brock was juiced or not, he was going to knock him out" would come back to bite him in the ass and lo and behold ====> <WellThere>


    And now he can finally FUCK OFF.

    He not only got beaten in the Octagon by Brock.....he got beaten in the Courtroom, too. #EatSleepBrockWinsRepeat bork1}<CanYouSeeMeNow>

    The golden rule. Those with the gold make the rules nowadays. Not how it's supposed to be but it is what it is. Hunt shoulda know better than challenge a 5 billion dollar org.

    He never stood a chance. Still he wasn't wrong, dirty Dana protects his cash cows no matter the cost. Jones, Conor and Brock could kill someone and he would let them fight and help bury the body.

    While I admit it is funny he said that in hindsight, it had nothing to do with the verdict.

    You can't prove UFC knew when Brock passed a bunch of test in June that came back BEFORE the fight.

    Does he really want to, though?

    The only person getting any money out of this, is his attorney.

    plus its extremely unlikely

    it was a bunch of BS anyways

    he knew lesnar was juiced -- he even said so pre fight -- took the fight -- got paid what he was promised

    dont see the issue or fraud here -- just a timely cry baby who seems to now be reeking in self pity

    So... Hunt doesn't have a case against Lesnar according to them because he knew Lesnar doping was a potential risk? How dumb is that?

    I’m so disconnected with people on this forum.

    Why do people hate Hunt?

    I don't think most do
    I just think his bravado of "I will beat him on steroids" then filing a lawsuit gives some a reason to have fun

    ‘Such as throwing Hunt out of the octagon or using packed gloves or a weapon’

    This bit is completely WTF for me. Nothing atypical happened like the above so move the fuck on Mark

    I hate him because of his whining and fucking attitude he developed after he found out Brock Popped.

    He absolutely went nuts on Facebook (or was it Instagram?) on ALL OF HIS FANS who were only trying to show support for him.

    I'm sure many here remember that fiasco. <Prem973>


    From that point on, I despised him for acting like a whiny bitch...and the worst part was HE NEVER STOPPED. He kept whining and whining and whining.....until he decided to sue which made him look like a limp-wristed cuck.


    So forgive me if I don't share a fucking tear that he lost. <13>
